Sharks charity Christmas card event

Here are some photos from the Sharks event on the 11th October. We raised $220 from raffle ticket sales and card competition entries, which will go towards the Mater Mothers' Bereavement Programme, so thanks to everyone who took entered. I still have spaces at the Redlands Sporting Club on the 1st November, but places are filling fast now people have heard what a great time everyone had at the Sharks and Springwood. Call or e-mail me to book your place NOW!
All the prizes that were up for grabs, over $1000 of Stampin' Up! products donated from head office in Sydney, thanks Stampin' Up!

Christmas choccies

I put these yummy choccies in my customers' bags for the Christmas Card Workshops that the Paper Angels are running this year. I used Ski Slope DSP, (only available until the end of November from Stampin' Up!'s mini catalogue) which is an absolute favourite of mine at the moment, and the Spotlight on Christmas stamp set, combined with stitched Chocolate Chip ribbon. You could decorate little chocolate bars for childrens parties or for teachers' gifts too.

Happy birthday Britney!

On the 20th September I went to a party - Britney's 10th birthday party! And I wasn't there just to scoff the food, her Mum Elisa had asked me to put a scrapbooking workshop together that Britney and her four friends could try. The girls were so excited, I hope it wasn't just the lollies! As you can see, we made a friendship page, I took them through it step by step, and they all did a fabulous job. Elisa tok this photo, and others with it, for them to put on their page after they had finished, and it worked a treat. Thanks Elisa for asking me to help out, and thanks Britney for your enthusiasm!
